Texas Ebony Block TE160
1.1" x 1.1" x 9"
This is an eye-catching spindle of Texas Ebony. It is about 50% the dark chocolate-brown of Texas Ebony heartwood and 50% the lighter honey-blonde of Texas Ebony sapwood. The grain is gently inclined to the long axis of the spindle.
This piece has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. There are two hairline cracks on the annotated end (see close-up) that might benefit from a bit of thin CA glue.
